Hi I have an ASUS k40IN
Intel dual core 2 + 2
4gb ram
nvidia geforce g102m 512mb

A couple weeks ago I installed battlefield 2 I kept it on lowest graphics but after a week of playing the game it froze up and stated getting "data execution prevention" messages so I turned DEP off and started get "display driver nvlddmkm.sys has stopped responding and has successfully recovered".
I only get this message when watching movies 720p or higher and also anything requiring 3d graphics (chess titans and even the nvidia control panel).
I've gone through all possible fixes for the nvlddmkm.sys error, drivers, hotfixes etc.
I ran memtest and my memory passed.
Recently I tried a video memory stress test off of majorgeeks.com and after a minute of testing my computer restarts.
Does this sound like software or hardware?
Are there any other tests I could try?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!

Did you at any time uninstall your current drivers and then install the latest drivers for your video card? Have you checked the temperature of your video card? Are you getting any artifacting?

To try and fix the problem I unintalled and installed thelatest drivers. Im not sure how to check the temperature. As for artifacting no it just blacks out then comes back.

it should be compatible with forceware drivers
even if it says that at the start of the program it will still let you procced.
